Understanding Genesis is a book full of insight not merely from the shelves of the library but also out of ministry and experience in walking with God. While this book may not have all the footnotes that professors might provide, it has insights that arise from walking among the people toward the City of God. Paige PattersonPresidentSouthwestern Baptist Theolgical SeminaryFort Worth, TexasThe Book of Genesis is the "Book of Beginnings." William Templeton in his book, Understanding Genesis endeavors to present the historical facts, genealogies, and lives and actions of six great men of the faith in clear, applicable, and understandable terms. Arranged in a unique way around the "times" of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph, this book takes the reader through Genesis identifying the plans, purposes, and principles of God and relating them to modern man living in modern times.William Templeton has been pastoring churches for more than three decades. He is married to the former Bonita Arlene Irby. The Templetons have four grown children, seven grandchildren, and counting. William Templeton attended Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University from 1969 through 1972.

This book is an exegetically sound and figurative approach to the seven days of Creation. It revolves around the notion that each day is a thousand or a multiple of a thousand in Earth year’s length. This is because, ‘Each day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day in your sight.’ References to the Day of the Lord are given credence in this theory and strongly related to the seventh day of Creation, which explores the notion of Armageddon as well as this epoch being a particularly ‘blessed’ day.

Reading Genesis After Darwin

Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species has changed the landscape of religious thought in many ways. There is a widespread assumption that before Darwin, all Christians believed that the world was created some 6,000 years ago over a period of 6 days. After Darwin, the first chapters of Genesis were either rejected totally by skeptics or defended vehemently in scientific creationism. This book tells a very different story. Bringing together contributions from biblical scholars, historians and contemporary theologians, it is demonstrated that both Jewish and Christian scholars read Genesis in a non-literal way long before Darwin. Even during the nineteenth century, there was a wide range of responses from religious believers towards evolution, many of them very positive. Stephen C. Barton and David Wilkinson argue that being receptive to the continuing relevance of Genesis today regarding questions of gender, cosmology, and the environment is a lively option.

Chapters 12-50 of the book of Genesis may be considered as enshrining the patriarchal traditions of the Jewish people. Besides the elements of poetry and legend embodied in these traditions, Professor Davidson shows that there can be a historical basis for the narratives and offers guidelines for exploring it. The Genesis stories cannot simply be seen as a reading back into earlier times of the background to the social customs and religious outlook of their later editors. Introductory sections deal with the sources, historicity and general character¬istics of the narratives, and are followed by a section-by-section presentation of the text with commentary in the established style of the series.

Honored in 2006 as a "Year's Best Book for Preachers" by Preaching magazine. Creation in six days Woman from the side of man "Sons of god" taking "daughters of men" A massive disaster and an animal rescue boat of biblical proportions Abraham, Sarah, Hagar and the ongoing saga of a dysfunctional family These are just a few of the episodes that Genesis conjures up. But we miss the point if we focus on what seems strange to us. And we distort the message if we demand that this book answer questions that are strange to it. To read Genesis intelligently, we must consider the questions, the literature and the times in which Genesis was written. In How to Read Genesis Tremper Longman III provides a welcome guide to reading and studying, understanding and savoring this panorama of beginnings--of both the world and of Israel. And importantly for Christian readers, we gain insight into how Genesis points to Christ and can be read in light of the gospel.

Called to Be God's People is an introduction to the Old Testament designed for those who wish to have a comprehensive guide to the contents, theology, and important passages of the Old Testament. Written from a Lutheran perspective, this book is especially designed for those within that tradition and others who seek a guide to the canonical books of the Old Testament that consciously presents the Scriptures' message of Law and Gospel as well as the traditional Christian messianic understanding of Moses and the Prophets that points to Jesus as the fulfillment of God's promises to Israel. This book is ideal for university students and other Christian adults who seek to expand their knowledge of the background, content, and message of the Old Testament and its importance for Christian faith and life. It not only introduces important background information on each book of the Old Testament along with a general discussion of its contents and theology, but it also contains analyses of major passages within the Old Testament. Key terms, study questions, a glossary, a gazetteer of Old Testament people and places, maps, tables, charts, and sidebars make this book a useful and handy reference as well as a textbook. A concluding chapter on the centuries between the Old and New Testaments overlaps with a similar treatment contained in the New Testament volume in this series, Called by the Gospel, allowing for a smooth transition to the study of the rest of the Christian Scriptures.
